systemd automount of cifs share hangs

Running latest CentOS 7.5. Since I found out about automount unit files
I've had mixed results using them to mount shares from my NAS. Lately they
seem to hang if I touch the mount point, but I can start the mount unit
without problems. I had it working months ago, so I'm thinking something
changed in the systemd updates.

For each mount point, I have two files in /etc/systemd/system named with
the path of the mount point and with extensions .automount and .mount,
following the systemd documentation.

Yesterday at CERN we had a gathering of CentOS SIGs. We discussed
changes that are coming in the CentOS infrastructure.

Can't access Samba shares from Nautilus

Hi,

I'm currently experimenting with Samba on a few sandbox machines.

On the server side, I have setup CentOS 7 with a basic Samba setup and
two shares, one public, the other password-protected.

I have two Windows 7 boxes in my network, and I can access the shares
perfectly, log in to the password-protected share, read and write files,
so this seems to work OK.

On my main Linux workstation (CentOS 7 + custom GNOME) I can't seem to
access these shares.

Check version from installer disc

Is there some way to see what version will be installed by an installation
disc? I made a USB installer and I forgot whether it's CentOS 7.3 or 7.5.
Short of running the whole installer and seeing what happens, I can't see
any way to get this info from within Anaconda.

C7, NetworkMangler, and IPv6

Hi, folks,

Freshly built box... but does not get its IPv6 address. Gets its IPv4
with no trouble, and if I *manually* run dhclient -v -N eno1, it gets
the correct IPv6, but after that, nope. And INITIPV^=yes in
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eno1. I even tried adding
NETWORKING_IPV6=yes to an otherwise empty /etc/sysconfig/network.

What am I missing?

What are the differences between systemd and non-systemd Linux distros?

Good afternoon from Singapore,

What are the differences between systemd and non-systemd Linux distros?

Is systemd implemented in all the latest Linux distros?

Please advise. Thank you.

C 7 installation annoyances

In the disk partitioner, I can't
1) choose to make the LVM with root and swap be on a RAID 1. Is there
some way to do that, rather than two separate partitions RAIDed?
2) They don't align, so I can't clone /dev/sda to /dev/sdb as a
failover (for /boot and /boot/efi). I've created those two, manually,
and nope, it wiped them out, so I can't clone those two.

Any solutions for either of these?

Hide CPU cores in system monitor

In CentOS 7.3 the gnome-system-monitor shows one big graph for CPU usage.
Now in CentOS 7.5 I see a red box for each core. On a machine with lots of
CPU cores, this is taking up too much screen real estate, so is there some
way to go back to the old behavior?

C6 Bind

Hi All,

I'm really struggling with a bind problem on C6.

bind runs split external and internal dns for a few zones. I had to
change the motherboard in my server and the ethernet device name changed
from eth3 to eth4. I've updated my firewall rules to accommodate that
change but bind in not resolving when accessed externally.

If I telnet to port 53 from outside my LAN I get a connection.

Centos7 & Selinux & Tor

I've just encountered a problem starting tor. When I do 'systemctl
start tor' it fails and I get selinux errors in the log.

Scroll bar arrows missing and behaviour change

I have done some Googling on this but everything I've found appears to be at
least 2 years old and mostly refers to Gnome

TBH, I'm surprised nobody else has mentioned it - maybe it's only happened to
me.

At some point over the last few months the behaviour of the scroll bars
changed and I'm finding it very annoying.

Firstly, the arrows have vanished.

Secondly, when clicking on the scroll bar background either above or below the
drag bar instead of doing a page up or page down which is what it used to do
(and what I want it to continue doing) it now moves the scroll bar to that

Issue with latest update of CentOS6

Hello,

after I did update all my CentOS6 boxes - VMs and router; two of them
(one VM and the router) are my local DNS resolvers;
and I'm using the DNSSECTLSAvalidator plugin from nic.cz:
<a href="https://www.dnssec-validator.cz/" title="https://www.dnssec-validator.cz/">https://www.dnssec-validator.cz/</a>

before the update this plugin worked using my resolvers, after the
update I get:
"Failure - bogus DNSSEC reply, DNSSEC validation not possible with
current settings"
of course, when telling using a custom resolver (the one of nic.cz) it
works, but before mine worked, too ...

Thanks,

I need SERIOUS help on GRUB in CentOS 7.5 1804

Good afternoon from Singapore,

I need SERIOUS help on GRUB in CentOS 7.5 1804.

Please refer to my installation notes at http://lists.linuxfromscratch.org/pipermail/lfs-chat/2018-October/028964.html

According to Petros' instructions, I need GRUB Legacy 0.97 for my Extremely Simple Linux. But GRUB Legacy 0.97 has been deprecated in CentOS 7.5. GRUB2 is installed by default on CentOS 7.5.

So I defied Petros' instructions and used GRUB2 for my Extremely Simple Linux compilation, with the end result that I do not see any operating system selection menu on GRUB2.

Booting CentOS 6 with Grub from CentOS 7

I had CentOS 6 installed on an MBR hard disk.

Small service interruption : paste.centos.org

Due to a HDD swap/replacement, we'll have to shut down a node, proceed
with maintenance, and restart the server

Migration is scheduled for """"Tuesday 9th October, 4:00 pm UTC time"""".
You can convert to local time with $(date -d '2018-10-9 16:00 UTC')

The expected "downtime" is estimated to ~20 minutes.

Affected services:
- some internal services for centos infra
- <a href="https://paste.centos.org" title="https://paste.centos.org">https://paste.centos.org</a>

Thanks for your comprehending and patience.

mount points @install time

hi everyone,

is there a way to add custom mount points at installation point?

And if there is would you say /usr should/could go onto a separate
partition?

many thanks, L.

netinstall problem -- corrupt alsa-utils-1.1.0-10.el6.i686.rpm?

Hello.

I try to install from the netinstall iso file. Everything works as I
expect up to the screen where I have to choose between "Desktop",
"Minimal Desktop", "Minimal", etc.

If I choose either "Desktop" or "Minimal Desktop", I have a pop up
saying "Installation Starting" with "Starting installation process",
and, about a few seconds afterward, an "Error" pop up that says:

The file alsa-utils-1.1.0-10.el6.i686.rpm cannot be opened. This is
due to a missing file, a corrupt package or corrupt media.

Upcoming changes to downloading AltArch .iso images

Hi, this notice is for those who employ some sort of an automation to
download AltArch (ie. aarch64, armhfp, i386, power9, ppc64, ppc64le)
CentOS 7 .iso/.raw.xz images from mirror.centos.org. Those using a
regular browser to download these images are not particularly affected,
and you can continue to the next message.

Previously, only main architecture .iso image downloads from
mirror.centos.org were redirected to isoredirect.centos.org, which then
displayed the user a list of nearby external mirrors.

"WARNING: fdisk GPT support is currently new"

Hi,

I'm currently teaching Linux system administration to a class at the
local "chambre de commerce". The course is based mainly on a minimal
CentOS 7 installation.

Usually my preferred tool for handling manual GPT partitioning is gdisk,
which is not installed on a minimal install. I just gave the good old
fdisk a spin, which enables GPT partition table creation with the 'g'
shortcut.

Here's what I get when listing a GPT-partitioned drive with fdisk:

# fdisk -l /dev/sdb
WARNING: fdisk GPT support is currently new, and therefore in an
experimental phase.

(How) do others SIGs provide kernel modules?

However, the kernel module is packaged with DKMS.

Swap space and hibernation on Centos 7

I just reinstalled Centos 7 on my Dell Inspiron 15 7570. This time I created a swap partitition that is 24 Gb in size since the machine has 16 Gb of memory. Still unable to hibernate with 'systemctl hibernate' which generates a message that a 'dependency on hibernate.target failed'.

Typing swapon -s or cat /proc/swaps I see:

NetworkManager, multiple IPs, and selinux...

Hello,

I was wondering if any one has seen issues with selinux name_bind denials
that result from having IP:PORT bindings for services to specific IP
addresses managed on an interface under NetworkManager's control?

I do realize that people will probably say stop using NetworkManager, and I
may, but the behavior is strange, and I'd like to have a better
understanding of what's going on.

The config is like so:

# nmcli c mod eth0 ipv4.addresses 192.168.1.10/24,192.168.1.11/24
# nmcli c down eth0
# nmcli c up eth0

CentOS 7.5, Apache 2.4, Kerberos

Hi List,

My goal in sending this email is to get some direction on where to start
looking to solve my problem. Thank you all in advance for reading through
this and providing any guidance!

I'm working on moving to new servers, upgrading from CentOS 6.7 to CentOS
7.5. In this move, we are also upgrading from Apache/2.2.15 to Apache/
2.4.33. Our servers are all sitting behind a load balancer end point.

====System specifics====
CentOS Linux release 7.5.1804 (Core)
Server version: Apache/2.4.33 (Unix)
Server built: Jul 3 2018 11:33:42

On all of our CentOS 6.7 machines, kerberos works.

Copy to smb share fails with "invalid argument" on CentOS 7

Hi,

I've had problems copying files to Windows shares from my CentOS 7
machine lately. I originally got this in the desktop file manager, but

mounted by gvfs works just fine, on the other hand. Also, the problem
does not occur with small files - I think anything below 64k is OK.

Trouble installing with Nvidia card

Hi all,
I'm having trouble doing a fresh install of CentOS 7.3. I'm using the DVD
installer ISO, burned to a USB flash drive. The system is a Supermicro
7048 with four Nvidia Titan Xp GPUs, and I have the monitor connected to
the first GPU. In the BIOS, VGA priority is set to Offboard, so I am
seeing POST messages (good).

The CentOS installer begins and shows a few messages on my monitor, but it
stops after "Reached target Basic System" ok. At this point, if I connect
a second monitor to the motherboard VGA port, then I see the installer
continuing on that screen.

Frefox update from firefox-60.2.0-1.el7.centos.x86_64 to 60.2.1-1.el7.centos.x86_64 lost master password

Hi list,

Did an update to firefox last night and rebooted over night.

Today I find firefox started without asking for master password - funny
me thinks.

Try to log in to a web service I use and find that my password does not
appear.

Check preferences and find that no master password is set and the
password list / table is empty.

As I do not trust my passwords to the cloud I do not save these to my
firefox profile ..... so back to manual entry for all my sites....

L1TF in CentOS

Hi,
      I've applied the latest kernel upticks of kernel and
microcode_ctl for L1TF.
Just rpm updates and rebooted, no further changes.

kernel-2.6.32-754.3.5.el6.x86_64.rpm
kernel-firmware-2.6.32-754.3.5.el6.noarch.rpm
kernel-headers-2.6.32-754.3.5.el6.x86_64.rpm
perf-2.6.32-754.3.5.el6.x86_64.rpm
microcode_ctl-1.17-33.3.el6_10.x86_64.rpm

L1TF has several mitigations.  So far I can see that only this one is
applied.

# cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/vulnerabilities/l1tf
Mitigation: PTE Inversion

Is this the definitive check?  I'm trying to confirm the L1Data Cache
flush isn't
enabled.

email Server for CentOS 7

Hi folks.

I’m looking for an email server. I have a C7 box already with nginx, PostgreSQL, Sinatra and Ruby. So I don’t want to install PHP, Apache, MySQL, etc.

Are there any ways/tutorials to set up a mail server under those restrictions? It would serve multiple domains.

Cheers, Bee

Testing

Simple bash question

I am calling a bash script and passing in somestring that includes a "$"

myscript "$plusmore"

I want to assign in the myscript the $1 arg to something like
MYTEXT="$1"

when I do that I dont get what I'm expecting. if I do
MYTEXT='$1'
I still dont get what I'm expecting.

On the first assignment of MYTEXT I do not want the "$" to be treated as a
shell variable. I cannot find out how to do that.

I do not have the option of escaping the call to myscipt "\$plusmore".

NetworkManager and multiple dhcp router option

Hello,

Our DHCP server broadcasts a router option consisting of 2 IPs.
Ideally they should both be set as default routes with different metrics, however this is not what is happening, only the first one gets used.
Anyone has any tips how to convince NetworkManager to do this?

Cheers

Installing Centos 7 on 4K laptop

I have recently bought a Dell Inspiron 15 7570 laptop with a 4K display on which I want to install Centos 7. I had some problems with the first install and am therefore redoing the install.

One problem is the minuscule font, both in the text window and in the graphic installer. It has been suggested that I should add nomodeset to the grub installer. There is an option to use TAB to complete option choices but nomodeset does not seem to be one of the available options. Am I missing something?

CentOS Community Container Pipeline: re-architecture migration window

Hi,
Since last few months, we were working on re-architecturing the
CentOS Community Container Pipeline Service to make
<a href="https://registry.centos.org" title="https://registry.centos.org">https://registry.centos.org</a> as a stable and reliable source for CentOS
based container images.

We are now done with the changes for better throughput and stability.
We are working on deploying the new service in production in coming
weekend (between 28th Sep 2018- 1st Oct 2018). During this time service
will be in maintenance mode. We will not be building new images for
registry.centos.org.

Enable FIPS mode for apache?

Here's a question that I have3n't found the answer to yet: does anyone
know the effect of enabling FIPS mode for apache? Will it break existing
websites? Does code need changing? Configuration, other than enabling it?

Seagate - experience/opinion on vendor?

hi guys

I have rather a large set of Seagate's SAS ST32000444SS, over a hundred
- experience I'm having from those in conjunction with their tech
support is abysmal.

I'm trying to update firmware of these drives and nothing works,
including tech support.

... and I cannot help but wonder - is just me who is so unlucky and
getting very, very poor support(taking naturally only of Linux) or in
fact Seagate are rubbish!

Care to share your say?

thanks, L.

Which is the best open source ecommerce platform?

Good afternoon from Singapore,

There are far too many choices when it comes to open source ecommerce solutions.

Are there any credible rankings of open source ecommerce platforms?

Which open source ecommerce solution do you think is the best and tell me why.

Thank you.

CVE-2018-14634 and kernel-debuginfo ?

The current mitigation for CVE-2018-14634 is a systemtap script
mentioned here:

<a href="https://access.redhat.com/security/cve/cve-2018-14634" title="https://access.redhat.com/security/cve/cve-2018-14634">https://access.redhat.com/security/cve/cve-2018-14634</a>

It also mentions that one can build a kernel module to distribute
to other machines, but in any case one needs the corresponding
debuginfo packages to do either.

After enabling CentOS-Debug.repo, what I get is:

kernel-debuginfo-2.6.32-754.3.5.el6.centos.plus.x86_64

which doesn't match, since I'm not running the centos.plus kernel,
so the systemtap script fails (tested only on CentOS 6 for the moment).

Is there some way to get kernel-debuginfo-2.6.32-754.3.
